Friday, June 27, 2014 - The kitchen remodel project is complete! Since our last post, Paul installed new vinyl soffit, fascia, and siding. He then put the finishing touches on some outside electric. Marsha then planted some bushes and flowers to complete everything on the exterior.

Marsha gets the grunt work yet again!

Fortunately, just as we completed the exterior work, the counter top people called to arrange installation of the counter. It sure turned out wonderful. We are delighted.

Paul spent a day struggling with the plumbing. Adjusting the old plumbing to fit the new sink and faucet, while fumbling under the kitchen cabinet is not a great way to spend a day. With some frustrating moments and some hard work, the plumbing was completed and we again had running water in the kitchen.

The last job to tackle was installation of the tile backsplash and grout.
